"And in the end, the beaches are left spread out into solitude waiting to be praised for their beauty. The cities creep up like hateful religions filled with nothing; but still pulchritudinous enough to entice just about anyone. The streets lie covered in cigarette butts.

"Style of this album is a Poem core. Based on the impact of the Japanese sub-culture (anime, music, comedy, game, radio) it was created in a room of small dark home. It is said to emerge from the magnificent strain of day-to-day trivial matters. In this album, abstract language has been used in addition to the Japanese. Even a man speaking in Japanese when listening will not understand half. I believe that there is value in that kind of chaos." - BOOL Topics: Experimental, Electronic, Poem Core, Spoken Word, Ambient, Abstract, Creative Commons, Black Square

Fescal’s recent wayward plunge into the dominion of dark experimental music demonstrates that not only is he a deft of beatless dark ambient drones but of melodic dark electron-organic music as well. The title track “Ginger Baker” is a noisy venture into an opaque world of undulating drones thundering above subtle textures of electronics and samples. The aptly named “Vulgar and Kitsch” follows with the catchy babble of strong synth and keyboard samples along with heavy crackles and...

This album was dedicated to those days in our lives that we forgot because we thought they were irrelevant. This is meant to be heard by people who believe in magic and people who believe in stories.

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: "mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human; "comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something;...

"These tracks are about stasis. "Living Grass on I-70" started as a short percussion solo. I slowed it way down--something like 800%--until the sound became really degraded. Then I kept altering the pitch until the sonic degradations became the main voice in the track. "The Finger Can't See" is an experiment with out of phase repetition, boredom, and annoyance.

“This album is partly a science-fiction story about a corrupt regime that turns people into machines, and partly not fiction at all.

"As you may know, Subterrestrial is largely influenced by hollow earth theories, but also conspiracy theories, unexplainable phenomenon and the mysteries of the universe. "Esoteric Zoo" is inspired by fantastic creatures from Persian and Medieval European mythology. My original intent was to create something more "ambient," but the tracks ending up sounding more rhythmic. My usual devices of drone, minimalism and repetition are present, as always." - Subterrestrial Topics: Experimental, Dark Ambient, Esoteric, Other, Meditative, Creative Commons, Black Square

Though I do listen to a lot of experimental music, this album has taken me to a new dimension that I just can’t fully comprehend.

Nature Circuit’s first “album,” Fuck This, Tilted Field, mixes elements of previous releases (most notably the power electronics of Songs in the Key of Death) with many new ideas and sound sources, producing a much wider range of textures. The range of the album is notable as well in that it mixes “heavier” tracks with quieter pieces. Recommended to fans of noise, power electronics, drone, and depressing music in general.

"The idea here is to create naïve music with an avant-garde edge. About half the tracks are essentially songs--short pieces with melodies and repeating sections--but made with extremely harsh sounds. They're melodic noise, so to speak. The other half are also noisy, but longer and free-form with no structure at all other their own sonic personalities, and the use of very simple kraut-rock influenced beats.
